AWS::CodeDeploy::Application

The AWS::CodeDeploy::Application resource creates an AWS CodeDeploy application. In CodeDeploy, an application is a name that functions as a container to ensure that the correct combination of revision, deployment configuration, and deployment group are referenced during a deployment. You can use the AWS::CodeDeploy::DeploymentGroup resource to associate the application with a CodeDeploy deployment group. For more information, see CodeDeploy Deployments in the AWS CodeDeploy User Guide.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::CodeDeploy::Application", "Properties" : { "ApplicationName" : String, "ComputePlatform" : String } }

YAML

Type: AWS::CodeDeploy::Application Properties :  ApplicationName : String  ComputePlatform : String

Properties

ApplicationName

A name for the application. If you don't specify a name, AWS CloudFormation generates a unique physical ID and uses that ID for the application name. For more information, see Name Type.
